Candidiasis and autism

Candida Albicans is a microscopic fungus, or in other words, a yeast. It lives in your gut and is normal. Each of us lives with hundreds of species of microbes in his gut. The irritations due to Candida albicans occur in all the humid zones of the body, and especially in the genital parts. When suffering from a Candida albicans infection, we say that one suffers from “mycosis” or more precisely “candidiasis”, the most common fungal infection.

Candida and autism

Japanese studies showing that candida is capable of producing toxins that cause severe long-term damage to the immune system and can also attack the brain. In extreme cases, severe disorders, totally resistant to conventional treatment, can occur as a result of candidiasis. These include depression, schizophrenia, and, in some cases, autism.

A small but significant proportion of children diagnosed as autistic are highly likely to be victims of a severe candida infection. If the candida infection were successfully treated in these cases (easier said than done), the symptoms of autism would show dramatic improvement.

In a typical case, the child appears to be a normal, reasonably healthy infant for the first 18 to 24 months. The speech begins, the child shows the common level of interest in his family and surroundings. A number of ear infections occur and are generally treated with antibiotics. Soon after that, sinister changes begin to occur. Speech development stops, then returns to the point of no longer speaking. Within a few weeks or months the child loses interest in his parents and his surroundings. The parents in question take the child to various specialists, and finally obtain a diagnosis: “autism.” The story is familiar. Many of us know of such cases.

Many children with autism have had frequent ear infections in young children and have had large amounts of antibiotics. These are believed to exaggerate the yeast problem. Other possible contributors to Candida overgrowth are hormonal treatments; immunosuppressants, chemotherapy; exposure to herpes, chickenpox, or other “chronic” viruses, or exposure to chemicals that can alter the immune system. There is a greater chance that a “general” environmental factor that affects our immune system (ie the ozone layer, “toxic” chemicals, etc.) may be the fault, which affects many children and adults.

Signs of the presence of Cándica

  • Was your child suffering from frequent diaper rashes?
  • Did you suffer from colic and irritability?
  • Do you have hives, eczema, or other skin problems?
  • Do you easily get athlete’s foot or are your nails infected with fungus?
  • Have you received 4 or more antibiotic treatments within one year?
  • Have you received 8 or more treatments with broad-spectrum antibiotics (Ceclor, Bactrim, Keflex, amoxicillin, etc.) in the last three years?
  • Have you had recurring hearing problems?
  • Have you had ventilation tubes inserted?
  • Do you have the hyperactive label?
  • Do you have learning problems?
  • Do you have short attention spans?
  • Is your child persistently irritable, unhappy, difficult to please?
  • Do you suffer from frequent digestive problems such as diarrhea, constipation, gas, etc.?
  • Do you often feel tired or depressed?
  • Do you complain of headaches, stomach pain or muscle pain?
  • Does cigarette smoke really bother you?
  • Do you feel that your child is not well and the analyzes and studies have not revealed the cause?

Candida Albicans bacteria multiply and migrate

A.- It distorts the balance of the intestinal flora, by canceling the vulnerable bifidobacteria causing: Indigestion, bad breath, windiness, abdominal gas distension, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and anal itching. B.- It flourishes in the mucous membranes causing: Oral, throat, vaginal, ocular and nasal inflammations (increasing the invasions of allergens), and also in the urinary tract, nails and skin (it causes acne, psoriasis and eczema). C.- It is transmuted into the very aggressive form of mycelium, penetrates through the intestinal wall, invades the blood stream and takes refuge in the tissues and joints. This bacterium, abundant and easily contagious, comes from the high consumption of alcoholic beverages, the irregular consumption of food, not eating at the required hours, the bad ones,


The main cause of candida is due to the use of antibiotics, taking birth control pills, using other hormones, especially immunosuppressants such as steroids, as well as diet, alcohol and stress. The most common factor is the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, which do not differentiate between harmless and pathogenic bacteria. Animal research published by the Environmental Illness Resource confirms that antibiotics and steroids create a substantial increase in colonization of pathogenic and candida bacteria due to the destruction of beneficial bacteria and the suppression of immune defenses.

This creates a variety of symptoms like

desire for food (sweets, alcoholic beverages, chocolate, etc.) earaches excessive allergies vaginal problems depression allergies to certain foods extreme tiredness migraines irritability forgetfulness obesity or excessive weight loss gas and abdominal bloating diarrhea or constipation PMS- premenstrual syndrome numbness and joint pain cloudy mind and many others.

Diet and its symptoms

If you have a need to eat sugar, bread or other carbohydrates, and are experiencing any other symptoms or just don’t feel well, the options that you are affected by Candida are very high, so you have to consider a change in your diet.

Basically, this change is to eat vegetables and proteins such as organic fish and meats, avoid carbohydrates, sugars, alcoholic beverages, fermented foods and even fruit and fruit juices including those that contain fructose, a natural fruit sugar. Dairy products should be used in very small amounts because they contain lactose, a sugar in milk. Being preferable in a first step not to take these products. This change in diet is not as simple as it may seem because the desire to take sugar and carbohydrates is extremely strong.

Once you have disengaged from sugar and carbohydrates for a few days, you will begin to feel in command again.

After a few months you will be able to introduce fresh fruits back into your diet. Fruit should be eaten exclusively on an empty stomach. The fruit is very easy to digest and moves quickly through the body. However, if eaten with a heavier meal such as protein, fat, or starch, the sweet fruit will remain in the stomach, fermenting and creating poor digestion.

The ferments in the fruit can then aggravate the Candida problem. This is why Candida also feeds on the vitamins available in the fruit. You can also add brown rice to your diet. Continue to avoid yeast-containing foods (such as bread, wine, and beer) for a few months to keep the growth of the fungus under control.

A nutritional and herbal supplement program is as important as a change in diet.
